Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on the Valley when Charlton Athletic and Hull City face each other on the last day of the season. The Red Robins are one point behind the playoffs berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the capital club. Charlton proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Lincoln City, and they are surely capable of beating Hull, who have already secured automatic promotion.
The Tigers did well to beat Wigan Athletic at the weekend, with the team celebrating the return to the Premier League. Considering that the league leaders have nothing to play for in Sunday’s football match, we are tempted to put our money on the Red Robins, who are desperate to secure a top-six finish. Hull City trio Mayer, Clark, and Fleming has been struggling with injury, and they are unlikely to be risked against Charlton. Important midfielder Forster-Caskey is facing race against clock to be fit for the decider.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and left midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450.
Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
